Bill Hader of 'Saturday Night Live'
Bill Hader, "Saturday Night Live"
Nomination Status: Emmy voters have warmed to nominating "SNL" ensemble players and it may be Hader's turn.
In His Favor: If you think back on "Saturday Night Live" over the past calendar year, is there any question that Hader's Stefon has become one of the show's most reliable and, thus far, not over-exposed characters in years? Hader had long been an "SNL" MVP due to his myriad impressions, but Stefon could be the character who puts him over the top for an Emmy nomination.
Working Against Him: It's a loaded category and correcting "SNL" oversights may seem less essential than over nomination oversights.
